I'd love to have that.. as a parts car. I'm bidding $7500. It's cool to drop a zero, right?

Yea... I really want it now... having that RedNeck drive it makes it even more special. Nicest car in the Trailer Park... and it's a Tiptronic - got to be the only Tiptronic CGT on the Planet!

Cheers!

They forgot the first rule of eBay marketing, they didn't put "Rare" in the title.

Anyone notice that the title says 2000 then at the bottom it says 2001?

for better or for worse

the saws-all work is done...

a little more history would help sell it, if its located in trailer park they already have a pretty good idea of their clientele...

Valvoline 20w50 motor oil, Valvoline 80w90 gear oil. Bumper to bumper inspection of all seals, boots and gaskets. Brake adjustment and tune up.

jokes aside, those "center locking look" wheels are intriguing. I'd like to see under that cap. If these are five lug how'd they get them to sit so flush looking. If they are true center locks how'd they mod it to work with the 986?

That's pretty cool then... covering the lugs is a pretty good idea. A cleaner more aero look without the need to errr clean them.

This must be a re-list (can't imagine they didn't get 75gir the 1st time) because when I saw it, someone asked about the accident report. I don't remember the exact wording but they said it was a minor deal (of course).

Wouldn't it be awkward trying to open the doors? I'd think you'd end up with a severe case of carpal tunnel.

What kind of front lights it has?

I like the front lights.

Anyone knows what that is? I'd de-amber my front lights by changing to those...

We could all by it for 7500$ and rip it apart

Maybe he's trying to get some Saudi billonaire to buy it. Since I live down the street from Kissimmee, I might just stop by and look it over. Just wondering why he didn't post a dozen or so, more pictures of the whole car.

wow!

I live next to an army base and a college town (K-State). That car would go completely unnoticed at our local Walmart parking lot. Maybe somebody should submit it to youdrivewhat dot com (no aff.) Check it out. Funny site!
